Stunning, Beautiful, Unique
I must admit that this is my first time listening to Ike Harold.
WHERE ELSE HAVE I BEEN?
It is rare that a single track exceeding 5 or 6 minutes in length will Truly hold my full attention. Amazing works of similar length still find bits of my mind wandering off into the mundane. It is with the Greatest Pleasure that I am able to say that this musical masterpiece floated into my brain and embraced every part of it. I was rapt! And then I immediately listened Again!
While this track is "defined" as post-rock/ambient, I must protest. This work lends itself to various genres, certainly, and calls to mind beautiful bits of others, but as a work of art, it simply defies definition.
If you do nothing else today, DOWNLOAD THIS AMAZING SONG. I am off to listen again as I search for everything I've been missing out on when it comes to Harold!
